(line 83-84) wh-名词性从句可作主语,也可作宾语。Wh- 疑问词通常包括who, what, whichever等连接代词,和where, when, how, why 等连接副词。如: Why he left so abruptly is not known to any of us. Ex. I can’t imagine_______________________ (什么会使他那样做)。 what made him act like that Discussion:  Discussion Michael is blind. Why do you think the author wants to keep quiet about this important detail until the very end of the story? As we read on, our admiration for Michael is building up until we believe that, when Michael broke both national and international records, we have reached the climax. However, the real climax is in the last sentence which shows that Michael is blind. It has a great impact on us. Slide28:  How do you understand the title “True Height”? The text title, True Height, itself has more than one meaning. It literally means “the new bar heights that Michael cleared one after another, and figuratively means “the tremendous obstacles Michael had overcome in attaining his goal”
